Hi. Looks like I am seriously considering transitioning out of M after 15 years. Planning to go back to separates. So I will have my Trinnov Altitude 32 (my best piece of audio equipment ever!) and an open speaker/amp. For the latter I am considering two options: Wilson Audio Alexa + Dan d'Agostino Momentum, OR Rockport Cygnus/Avior + Gryphon Mephisto/Colosseum.

Wanted to know if anyone here has experience with any of the above components, or maybe even pairs, and whether there are any other recommendations.

Thanks

Shankar

Hi Shankar. I understand your reasons for wanting to leave Meridian, but I'm curious... Given your existing level of investment, are you not considering trialling (at least) the 271 as an interface from Trinnov to 861v8?

Thanks VirusKiller.
I have been using the Trinnov [coax out front] into a Coax in of the 861 [set at fixed 87 volume level] as my fronts ever since I got the Trinnov. That works well. The driver for the transition is a desire to move back into a full HT config [moving home] and some diffidence with Meridian as a brand. Also they changed their distributor in India lately; the Erstwhile D was very good on support, don't know about the new. Also perhaps just looking for a change after so many years.
